What Does Your Ram 2500 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms.

Questions About 2018 Ram 2500’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ram 2500? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your 2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 2500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ram 2500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ram, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
